For each day of pod_aware there's going to be a theme, a subject we will expand on to help spread awareness. Here are the planned topics:

November 7: Podfic 101/Why We Podfic
November 8: Blanket Permission
November 9: Author/Podficcer Relationships
November 10: Accents
November 11: Feedback
November 12: Repodding
November 13: Encouraging Podfic

All you have to do in order to participate is to post something (and remember, the something doesn't have to be podfic related, or related to that day's theme) on one of these days with a little bit of information about podfic (provided) and link to it in on this comm. That's the bare minimum. You don't have to post something every day (but you can and it's totally encouraged!), just post what you're able to/comfortable with on as many days as you want.

You don't have to sign up in advance however here are the reasons why you might want to (and why we want you to):
  • Commitment motivates some people to complete things.

  • Sign ups help your mods gauge people's interest levels and help us give a more even flow fanworks.

  • Writing about what you're thinking of doing lets other people send you encouragement!


If you do choose to sign up now, sign ups are less of a firm commitment than a heads up of your plans. If you end up doing more or less, that's ok too.

Here's the sign up form:

Day(s) you're interested in posting on: All of them.
What kind of fanwork(s)/fandoms are you thinking of posting? Well I'm hoping to post at least 3 podfics, a tutorial, meta, rec list(s?) and maybe a pic spam. Most likely it'll be AI8/Kradam oriented.

Day(s) you're interested in posting on: All of them!
What kind of fanwork(s)/fandoms are you thinking of posting? I'm gonna start working NOW on a rec list for every day that is directly based on the daily theme (and hopefully I'll have all 7 done in a month XD). Additionally, I'll try and post at least one podfic, and hopefully (hopefully!) I'll get another installment out of my podfic cover tutorial series. And possibly some meta on the first day. I may also try and pimp on non-LJ places--tumblr, twitter, etc., to try and boost awareness outside the normal places.

Day(s) you're interested in posting on: Definitely on Nov 7, 10, 11 and 12. Hopefully every day.
What kind of fanwork(s)/fandoms are you thinking of posting? I'll do Bandom. I don't really have precise plans, but I imagine I'll try and record at least one ficlet, maybe do a repod, maybe re-record something I've done, but in my "natural" French accent? I'll think about it some more in the coming month :)

Day(s) you're interested in posting on: all of them! Especially the 9th, 10th and 13th.
What kind of fanwork(s)/fandoms are you thinking of posting? I'd like to make a podfic for every day but that's probably a wee bit too ambitious. I'm very very tempted to record an entire podfic in a different accent to my natural one for the 10th, though, probably in bandom but maybe possibly TSN.

What kind of fanwork(s)/fandoms are you thinking of posting? probably a meta-ish post, a recs list, possible podfic if I get something done around then. I love the idea, I guess I'll just see what I have time for! :)

<strong>What kind of fanwork(s)/fandoms are you thinking of posting?</strong> I'll do it for Bandom and maybe Glee, anyways. Some posts on tumblr, twitter, etc. informing people about it. I have a few bandom and glee podfics lined up, so I could post them. I'd love to record something in a different accent, but I'm not sure what yet... I'm Irish. Hmm.

What kind of fanwork(s)/fandoms are you thinking of posting? Harry Potter, I might post a little meta discussion or essay, probably a few recs, maybe post up a podfic set of my Snarry drabbles. We'll see when the time comes.

What kind of fanwork(s)/fandoms are you thinking of posting? probably mostly babble and podfics. :D in an ideal world i'd have some actual commentary and a relevant podfic for each day i post, but i'm not sure how likely that is.... for fandoms, i don't even know.

What kind of fanwork(s)/fandoms are you thinking of posting? Bandom. I'd like to post a repod and maybe a rec list of podfic that is not read in the accent of the characters. Maybe I'll try to 'put on' an American accent and re-record something I've already done, but that may be cruel and unusual punishment for people's ears.

Day(s) you're interested in posting on: I'd like to try for all of them but might have to miss a couple.
What kind of fanwork(s)/fandoms are you thinking of posting? I've already got a short podfic ready, will try a repod of my very first podfic too, might have a chapter of the current WIP to post as well, and I'm planning a bloopers post, too. Things I'd like to do but might not have time for: a podfic in a fandom I haven't recorded in yet and a short recs list.
Parakaparaka on November 5th, 2011 04:45 pm (UTC)
Yay! And don't worry about not signing up before (signing up isn't actually necessary :).

Well, you know I recently sent you some recs... *wheedles* O:)
Jem: podficcrazybutsound on November 5th, 2011 04:57 pm (UTC)
I know! I actually have my eyes on "Lambent", even though a podfic already exists, lol.
Parakaparaka on November 5th, 2011 05:08 pm (UTC)
You should! jerakeen has blanket permission, so that shouldn't be a problem, and I've spoken to diane_mckay about repodding and she seemed ok with the idea (she also repodded something I did, although I think that might have been more of a we-both-recorded-but-I-got-mine-up-first kind of things).
Jem: podficcrazybutsound on November 5th, 2011 05:39 pm (UTC)
This might show how much of a newbie I am but I never even thought to ask diane_mckay how she feels about it. I mean, I never would expect anybody to ask me before recording a story I've already podded, lol.
Parakaparaka on November 5th, 2011 06:12 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I don't actually expect it either, but there can be hurt feelings over repodding at times so a lot of people do talk to the original podficcer first. I, personally, don't feel it should be necessary, but a lot of people do it to be polite I guess (and to avoid wank)?

And while I think that not assuming you had to ask is relative to how new you are to podficcing, I don't think it's a bad thing? I have been working hard to get that kind of mindset out there. :) I think some of the first public meta discussion on repodding I came across showed it in a negative light and even though there's been a lot of positive meta since then, I think, for those of us that were there, that original conversation stuck and we're extra cautious.
Jem: podficcrazybutsound on November 5th, 2011 07:14 pm (UTC)
Also, I've been hearing anatsuno talk about podficcing since before I was into it and I never heard her speak negatively of repodding, quite the opposite, so that probably reinforced that for me. But I'll have a word with the initial podfic artist, then, because I would hate to hurt feelings inadvertantly.

My contribution to the awareness week: I'm posting a general recommendation of podfic and a rec of Scandinavian podfic especially, trying to encourage other Scandinavians to make more of them: http://scandafandom.livejournal.com/9716.html

Great initiative! Podfic <3!
